2nd one is the best in my view as the image is very clearly showing both bird in its full stretch and place of its food.

For me, I preferred the 2nd. The bird was in the middle of the frame with the wings wide open. Higher clarity and cleaner shot.

I like the third one, but do prefer when the wings are in the back rather than in the front.

Denny. I spent a week at Ellis Island before they opened it to the public shooting a documentary for The History Channel. We literally had the place to ourselves. I was even able to locate the passenger list from the boat my grandparents came to America on, from Austria, in 1913. I like the last image. The feeder is irrelevant and #3 stands on it's own. jeff

I prefer the third one. All are good, of course. The bird stands alone and there is nothing the distract from him. The movement is more visible.

Fantastic! Nice use of shutter speed against the dark background. Outstanding captures.

My vote is also for the third one for two reasons A) the sense of movement and B) it looks more real . . . meaning BECAUSE the second one looks like it is suspended in mid air there is no real emotional connection. The third image feels much more interactive with the viewer.

This was shot with one 500 watt sec. Novatron flash head at F16 at 1/200 sec.
Camera was a Olympus E510 with a 300mm lens.

All three are good but I like number 2 best because it looks like the bird is suspended in mid-air. Do you know what aperture and shutter speed you used? I'm asking because I'm still learning.
